     Mary Griffiths Google Review My father has been at Caroline Place about two and a half years. I can't say enough good things about his home. The staff are incredible.

     Hugh Duffy Google Review My Mother spent the last four years of her life here. The staff were excellent. Their response and precautions taken to prevent an outbreak of Covid in the building were impressive. I got regular e-mail updates that were appreciated. My family thanks the staff for all their support and care shown to my Mother. I would highly recommend this Retirement Home.        - Hugh Duffy
